Description [Suggest Changes]

This trail follows the Laurel Fork Creek from Station Camp Ford to the Sawmill Trailhead. It is a really beautiful trail with 20+ creek crossings depending on the water level. On average, the creek crossings will be no higher than your knees. Keep an eye out for beavers, and you'll surely see lots of beaver chews. For the most part this trail is pretty flat, but heading up to Sheltowee Trace going east is a pretty big uphill.

We hiked during a drought and had 26 creek crossings. 75% of crossings had to be done by wading. Trail is not marked well. 15mi
